AQ has proudly operated Garden City Aged Care Services since late 2004. This purpose-built home has three accommodation options. Firstly, single room suites with kitchenette, secondly, a home-like secure cottage called Palm Court, and finally, cottage suites. We also offer specially-designed respite and palliative care suites.
Our kitchenette rooms enable independent and private living while providing high care to meet the varying needs of our residents. Residents have the opportunity to enjoy personal time in their own rooms, or enjoy their day spending time with visitors in the newly refurbished lounge and outdoor patio. Similarly, with its boutique hotel feel, Palm Court promotes home life with quiet spaces and opportunities for participation in daily activities, such as home-style cooking. The home has also recently released newly decorated suites featuring premium facilities tailored to independent, private living, each with fully contained kitchen, dining and living areas.
At Garden City, all meals are freshly prepared on site daily. This home-style cooking activity and aromas creates an environment reminiscent of everyday home life.
Garden City boasts a robust lifestyle program comprising a range of group and individual activities for residents, including cultural days, a music program, shopping trips, art classes and flexibility and fitness sessions. Garden City’s wellness and enablement approach is further reinforced through its residents access to a range of specialist professionals, including a dentist, physiotherapist, speech pathologist, occupational therapist and podiatrist.
Garden City’s excellence in care is demonstrated by the numerous awards the centre has won, including the Better Practice award in 2012 for its leisure and lifestyle program, and the Better Practice award in 2014 for use of technology.
At Garden City, all residents benefit from our staff’s distinct knowledge, skills and expertise in dementia care. Our staff undergo regular training in dementia care to ensure their skills are maintained, and that their care reflects our underlying philosophy based on the value and individual choices of our residents. Furthermore, Garden City has 24-hour registered nursing on site to support the complex care and medical needs of those residents requiring a higher level of care.
Hear what our resident Gwenda McNaught has to say about our music relaxation sessions at Garden City:
“I almost missed my session today because I was caught up with gardening. I love gardening, but my favourite activity at Garden City is the music relaxation session I do with Jing.
The soft, peaceful music and Jing’s quiet voice takes me to another level. My body relaxes and my mind stops being busy, busy, busy. During these sessions, I can drop my problems onto a leaf floating away down a creek or drop themfrom a cloud in the sky. My shoulders relax and feel soft . The music relaxation sessions with Jing take me away from any pain and worry, and lighten my week.”
– Kind words of Ms Gwenda McNaught
